Chapter 1: Introduction
This board is an ideal solution for adding portable, easy-to-install digital I/O to any computer with a USB port.
As a USB 2.0 high speed device it offers the fastest speed available with the USB bus, while being
compatible with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 ports. The board is plug-and-play allowing for quick
connect/disconnect whenever you need additional I/O on your computer.
Model Versions
16 isolated digital inputs and 16 relay outputs, enclosure, module and screw terminal board
16 isolated digital inputs only version
16 relay outputs only version
8 isolated digital inputs and 8 relay outputs version
4 isolated digital inputs and 4 relay outputs version
Each version is a different population on the same PCB. This manual primarily describes the 16 input / 16
output version. Wherever references occur to the number of inputs and number of outputs, substitute the
number of inputs and outputs with the quantity specific to the model you are considering, or have purchased.
All lesser quantity than the fully populated versions start their I/O counts from input 00, and from relay 00. So
the IIRO-8 version would be populated with inputs IN00 through IN07 and outputs OUT00 through OUT07
(RELAY 00 through RELAY 07). The IIRO-4 version would be populated with inputs IN00 through IN03 and
outputs OUT00 through OUT03 (RELAY 00 through RELAY 03). The corresponding removable screw
terminal board would also be only populated with the terminals to access the I/O on the model you
purchased.
Accessories:
Internal plug in screw termination board (Green screw terminals = AWG 26-16)
(Gray screw terminals = AWG 28-20)
External power supply components and AC/DC adapter
Options:
-OEM
-E
-DIN
Board Only version (no enclosure or screw terminal board)
Economy model (no screw terminal board)

Functional Description
FEATURES:

High-Speed USB 2.0 device, USB 1.1 compatible

16 optically isolated inputs

16 Form C electromechanical 1A relays

Internal, removable screw terminal board for easy wiring

Small (4" x 4"x 1.25") rugged industrial enclosure

Custom high-speed function driver

PC/104 module size and mounting compatibility
INPUTS
The board provides sixteen optically-isolated inputs. These inputs can accept either AC or DC signals and
are not polarity sensitive. Input signals are rectified by photocoupler diodes while unused power gets
dissipated through a 1.8k-ohm resistor in series. The inputs may be driven by either DC sources of 3 to 31
volts (rms) or AC sources at frequencies of 40 Hz to 10 KHz. Standard 12/24 AC control transformer outputs
can be accepted as well. External resistors connected in series may be used to extend the input voltage
range, however this will raise the input threshold range. Consult factory for available modified input ranges.
Each input circuit contains a switchable filter that has a 4.7 millisecond time constant. (Without filtering, the
response is less then 40 microseconds) The filter must be selected for AC inputs in order to eliminate the
on/off response to AC. The filter is also valuable for use with slow DC input signals in a noisy environment.
The filter may be switched out for DC inputs in order to obtain faster response. Filters are individually jumper
selected. Filters are switched into the circuit when jumpers are installed in position FLT0 to FLT15.
OUTPUTS
The board’s outputs are comprised of sixteen FORM C SPDT electro mechanical relays. These relays are all
de-energized at power-on. Please note that once your hardware is properly installed in your system
you will likely want to run one of our sample programs to exercise the I/O. When doing so, as soon
as the sample program is run it will turn on all the relays and leave them in that state until you turn
them all off within the sample.
SCREW TERMINAL ACCESSORY BOARD
A Screw Terminal Accessory board is included with the unit, except for the Economy (E) and OEM versions.
The board provides access to all 80 I/O signals via removable screw terminals. Each removable screw
terminal carries 8 I/O signals, signal names are clearly marked on the accessory board's silk screen. The
screw terminal board plugs directly onto the I/O board while fitting inside the rugged industrial enclosure.
USB CONNECTORS
The primary USB connector is a Type B connector and mates with the cable provided. The USB port
provides communication signals along with +5 VDC power. The board can be powered from the USB port or,
if needed for higher current applications, an external power supply can be used. Selection of power source
is accomplished via a hardware jumper setting. A secondary USB connector (P4) is available to use instead
of the Type B which is an embedded mini 5-pin connector that is in parallel with and next to the primary
connector.

Manual USB-IIRO-16 Family
LED
The LED on the front of the enclosure is used to indicate power and data transmissions. When the LED is in
an illuminated steady green state, this signifies that the board is successfully connected to the computer and
has been detected and configured by the operating system. When the LED flashes continuously, this
signifies that there is data being transmitted over the USB bus.

Chapter 2: Installation
Software CD Installation
These paragraphs are intended to detail the software installation steps as well as describe what is
being installed.
The software provided with this board is contained on one CD and must be installed onto your
hard disk prior to use. To do this, perform the following steps as appropriate for your operating
system. Substitute the appropriate drive letter for your drive where you see d: in the examples
below.
WIN98/Me/2000/XP/2003
a.
b.
c.
Place the CD into your CD-ROM drive.
The CD should automatically run the install program. If the install program does not run,
click START | RUN and type , click OK or press .
Follow the on-screen prompts to install the software for this board.
Hardware Installation
The board can be installed in any USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 port. Please refer to the USB I/O Quick Start
Guide which can be found on the CD, for specific, quick steps to complete the hardware and
software installation.

Chapter 3: Option Selection
Refer to the setup programs on the CD provided with the board. Also, refer to the Block Diagram and the
Option Selection Map when reading this section of the manual.
Input Power
This is an option for applications that use more current than what your computer can provide on the USB
port (typically 500 mA). The DC jack has a 2.00mm post on board and is designed to be used with the 9
VDC AC/DC external power supply that ships with this option. The voltage regulator on board regulates the 9
VDC and provides 5 VDC to the onboard circuitry. When using external power, switch the jumper located
near the USB connector to VEXT, otherwise when the jumper is in the VUSB position current is drawn from
the USB port.
Filter Response Switch
Jumpers are used to select input filtering on a channel-by-channel basis. When jumper FLT0 is installed,
additional filtering is introduced for input bit 0, FLT1 for bit 1, etc.

*Notes on Isolation: Opto-Isolators and connectors are rated for at least 500V, but isolation voltage
breakdowns will vary and is affected by factors like cabling, spacing of pins, spacing between traces on the
PCB, humidity, dust and other environmental factors. This is a safety issue so a careful approach is required.
For CE certification, isolation was specified at 40V AC and 60V DC. The design intention was to eliminate
the influence of common mode. Use proper wiring techniques to minimize voltage between channels and to
ground. For example, when working with AC voltages do not connect the hot side of the line to an input.
Tolerance of higher isolation voltage can be obtained on request by applying a conformal coating to the
board.
